“Kim’s exquisite artwork renders distinct personalities and characters represented by diverse skin colors and hairstyles, priceless expressions, and irrepressible energy. An endearing and hopeful expression of spontaneous fun and togetherness.”

Illustrated by Anna Kim
Published by Penguin Young Readers Group

Danbi’s favorite day is here!

Thrilled to invite her friends to celebrate Children’s Day as she did in Korea, she promises kites, tigers, and magic train rides. But when the reality of a picnic behind her parents’ deli falls short of her grand plans, Danbi must get creative to save the day.

In this delightful follow-up to Danbi Leads the School Parade, Anna Kim brings her stunning illustrations and lively text to celebrate the children of the world, the power of creativity, and the joy of coming together.
